Diagnosis. The wings are blackish brown, irrorated finely with grey except for the slightly crenate and diffuse postmedials and submarginals on all wings; the grey suffusion is slightly more intense on the distal side of the submarginals. The forewing has a blackish discal mark that is often centred by a white lunule. The underside is similar, but the hindwing discal mark is as strong as, or stronger than, that of the forewing.
